Church: Clerically Speaking Podcast (Part 2)

Friends, in this second video clip from the Clerically Speaking Podcast with Fr. Harrison Ayre and Fr. Anthony Sciarappa, our discussion centers on the theology of the Church, or ecclesiology. I express my concerns regarding the abuse scandal, the phenomenon of disregarding ecumenical councils, and the tendency to downplay the role of evangelism in our ecclesiology. My recommendation for moving forward in our mission is to read closely the documents of Vatican II, and to read them in community and with charity.
